A Nice Place To Be is the fifth album by the brilliant soprano saxophonist George Howard.This CD was very smooth before Smooth Jazz became a definition for today's smoother sounds. Some of the sweeter sounds are "Jade's World, "Sweetest Taboo", "Spenser For Hire" from the television show of the same title. I vote for "Stanley's Groove" as the funkiet on this album.This has to be Georges finest hour, along with a stellar cast of jazz musicians to boot (including George Duke and Stanley Clarke).

Wewantsounds present the first official release outside of Japan for The Mystery Kindaichi Band's The Adventures of Kindaichi Kosuke, originally released in 1977. The "imaginary" soundtrack to the cult detective book series by writer Seishi Yokomizo is on many DJ want-lists.

Writer Seishi Yokomizo is an institution in Japan. He could be compared to Agatha Christie with his series of novels based on the adventures of detective Kosuke Kindaichi.

Released in 1980 on A&M Records and produced by George Duke and engineered by Erik Zobler, this album, combined with the popularity of the others, became the height of Seawind's success and recognition. A&M also produced a video of the song What Cha Doin', which helped it become a top ten hit and Seawind was now on both the jazz and R&B charts of the major trade magazines. The group tours Japan for a second time, performs in Manila, Philippines and stops in Hawaii for their annual home coming tour, performing on Kauai, The Big Island and Oahu. Record sales and radio air play peaked in 1981, and the group began working on their fifth recording. Completed in 1982, it sadly was never released and the group breaks up.

When Herbie Hancock left Warner Bros. in 1971 after releasing three musically sound but critically and commercially underappreciated albums – The Crossing, Mwandishi, and Fat Albert's Groove – he was struggling. At odds with a jazz establishment that longed for his return to his Blue Note sound and a fierce consciousness struggle with free music and the full-on embrace of electricity since his tenure with Miles Davis, Hancock was clearly looking for a voice. Before diving into the commercial waters that would become Headhunters in 1973, Hancock and his tough group (including Billy Hart, Julian Priester, Dr. Eddie Henderson, Bennie Maupin, and Buster Williams) cut this gem for their new label, Columbia. Like its Warner predecessors, the album features a kind of post-modal, free impressionism while gracing the edges of funk.

"19" is a song by British musician Paul Hardcastle released as the first single from his self-titled third studio album Paul Hardcastle (1985). The song has a strong anti-war message, focusing on America's involvement in the Vietnam War and the effect it had on the soldiers who served. The track was notable for early use of sampled and processed speech, in particular a stutter effect used on the words "n-n-n-n-nineteen" and "d-d-d-d-destruction". It also includes various non-speech samples such as crowd noise and a military bugle call.

The 1970s saw a plethora of great funk and jazz albums that for somewhat mystifying reasons have failed to be reissued.

With this in mind we are launching BGP Funk and Soul Classics: long out-of-print albums on CD featuring the very best mastering, great packaging and some nifty sleeve notes to let you know where the album fits into the scheme of things. Our first batch of releases come from the extensive catalogue of Fantasy Records and feature a host of albums that are sought after by collectors the world over.

Out of all the expressive instruments, the guitar's range and mobility seems to make it the one most suited for a performer with a big ego. But Ray Obiedo's success as a worldbeat pop-fusion guitarist may be due to the way he shuns that idea. He's never been one to dominate his own compositions, and this allows for the fascinating textures and exotic timbres his vision reaches. His latest gem never strays far from the expansive strokes of melodicism he's best known for, and yet what sticks with you long after the disc changer turns off are the atmospheric travelogues he produces so efficiently.

Following two studio recordings, this impressive band hit the road and cut this session with keyboardist George Duke. Their encounter provided for an uneven, but infectious, recording. "Hip Pockets," composed by Cobham, and "Ivory Tattoo," composed by Scofield, begin the session with some intense playing. Things get a bit goofy with "Space Lady" (a song which probably worked better live), and a bit melodramatic with "Almustafa the Beloved."
